1989 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Review
Good Work Truck — I like the fact that for a very minimal investment I have a truck that will complete a day of work and get me home on time. The truck paid for itself hauling debris from a job site on its first week at work. its easy to work on, parts are cheap.. and hopefully, will have a paint job some time this summer!!! This is going to be a fun project for my son and I to make a playtoy for him when he gets a little older.
Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)
Pros: Lots of power, not worried about bailing off in the brush!!
Cons: Fuel mileage is horrendous!!

My Favorite In A Line Of 6 Trucks I've Owned

Red Neck Awesome
That engine is a beast, it takes a lot of gas so I had to buy a little honda for my daily commute to and from work (22 miles each way), on the other hand it is build like a rock. It's 26 years old an... Read More
1997 Chevrolet K3500 Crew Cab
Was a nice truck at one time but I got it after over 10 years of being a contractor and welding truck so it took its beating and ended up having about 500000miles when it died completely. It was very ... Read More
Absolutely A Work Horse
I enjoy this truck for towing. It has been a great family vehicle as I have actually had my girlfriend and two kids in it and we went on a trip out of state and hit a snow storm. We had to drive 40 mi... Read More
Chevy For Life
Truck is amazing, it's a real work horse. The motor is bullet proof. The transmission still shifts as crisp as it did when it came off the lot. Couldnt ask for a better towing rig, short of my 08 Dura... Read More
